The WBA has announced that a deal has been reached between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk for a heavyweight showdown on April 29 at Wembley Stadium in London.

The agreement comes after months of negotiations and a deadline set by the WBA.

If the deal was not made, Usyk would have had to defend his title against Daniel Dubois.

The WBA was informed by both sides that they had tentatively reached a deal.

Fury successfully defended his WBC title in December against Derek Chisora while Usyk has won back-to-back decision victories over Anthony Joshua.

Earlier, Usyk had requested a 70-30 split in his favour with the additional condition of a $1 million donation to his home country of Ukraine which is currently in a military conflict with Russia.

Fury had responded with a 'take it or leave it' offer, claiming that Usyk and his team were only worth 30%. Fury warned that if Usyk did not accept the offer, his percentage would decrease by 1% every day he delayed.

Fury also offered Usyk a fight against Daniel Dubois for $2 million if he declined the offer.

This heavyweight clash between Fury and Usyk is highly anticipated by boxing fans worldwide.

Fury is known for his unorthodox style and towering height of 6ft 9in, while Usyk, a former undisputed cruiserweight champion, has been impressive since moving up to heavyweight.

The fight promises to be a thrilling encounter between two of the most talented fighters in the division.

The event will take place in front of a packed crowd at Wembley Stadium, one of the most iconic venues in world sport.
